  • I just made this and it was really good. My boyfriend said it was perfect. I added about a half of a cup of potato flakes to thicken it up a bit. Other than that I follwed the recipe exactally. - 4/12/09

  • I love this recipe; however, instead of using flour to thicken the soup, I mash up some of the potatoes and let it simmer to the desired consistancy. Then I add the potato chunks. - 3/23/09
